Northrop Grumman is to take the lead role in a bid to offer a development of BAE Systems’ Hawk advanced jet trainer for the US Air Force’s eagerly anticipated T-X contest.
“The decision to realign was reached mutually by all team members to better leverage Northrop Grumman’s domestic development and production capabilities,” the US company said on 7 July of the agreement for it to assume “prime contractor responsibilities”.
Doesn't a CAS version of the Hawk exist...I think it 's called the Hawk 200? Maybe they'll get a trainer and a CAS platform all rolled into one.

The T-X is only an Air Force program, to replace their T-38s. The Navy already flies a Hawk variant, the T-45 Goshawk.
